Prostate Health

What is the prostate?

The prostate is a walnut-sized gland whose primary purpose is to help in a man's reproductive function. The location of the prostate is just underneath the bladder in men. Due to the location of the prostate gland and its adjacent anatomy, it occasionally will affect men's urinary control or cause urinary issues. Some of these symptoms can include urinary frequency, urgency, and having to urinate at night.

Research on SPOP Prostate Cancer Subtype Prognosis and PSA levels

Dr. Christopher Barbieri was interviewed as a co-senior author on new prostate cancer research from Weill Cornell Medicine & colleagues, regarding the interpretation of PSA levels in patients with the SPOP prostate cancer subtype.

"These findings are counterintuitive," said co-senior author Dr. Christopher Barbieri, an assistant professor of urology at Weill Cornell Medicine. "In general, if your PSA is higher, the cancer is more dangerous. However, this study found that tumors associated with a high PSA and SPOP mutations were less dangerous."

Treating prostate cancer with cryotherapy: Richard Hayden's success

Richard Hayden is a quick-witted 80-year-old living in Manhattan. He enjoys being healthy and active; taking advantage of all that New York City has to offer during his retired years.

Earlier this year, during a routine visit with his primary care physician, he was told that his prostate-specific antigen (referred to as "PSA") levels were abnormally high. Richard was then referred to Dr. Loo, a urologist at Weill Cornell Medicine. After several more blood tests, Dr. Loo became concerned about the potential of prostate cancer.
